Oh boy, this is really happening.
Bill Nye, 90s kids favorite science guy is going to be a contestant for Dancing With The Stars’ 17th season.
The scientist (celebrity?) arrived to practice in Hollywood, California on September 8, 2013.
He did not disappoint.
Bill Nye wore his trademark bow tie that I hope he will wear forever.
I can’t believe this happening.
But Bill Nye wrote a blog post in The Planetary Society explaining that “In order for us to carry out our mission to get the world — our world — excited about and supportive of space exploration, we need to engage people everywhere. The show is watched by millions. I’ll be there as your CEO of The Planetary Society and a student of Carl Sagan. Buzz Aldrin appeared on this show three years ago.”
Guys, I’m scared for the name of science what DWTS might do with sound bites and clips.
What do you think of this season’s contestants?
